[laughter] originally, it was moved over vast distances in that quite tasty form of whiskey. we then moved to pigs which are, of course, corn with feet -- [laughter

because that's what the 10th district expects. stretching north along lake michigan, the -- from chicago to waukegan, from libertyville, pal tyne east to lake forest and lake bluff, highland park west through buffalo grove and long grove, i've been fortunate to represent a diverse condition gregsal district that asks its lawmakers in washington to tackle a wide ranging agenda. with so many good people at home in the 10th district and here in the united states congress, we have been able to achieve a number of things i will forever be proud of. in the house of representatives, we've kept a sustained focus on job creation and on creating a climate that better helps the private sector grow. i believe that this represents the best path to ensuring sustained economic opportunity and upward mobility for millions of americans. the house has passed over 30 bills that focus on job creation. i'm pleased that the house unanimously passed the jobs focused initiative that i introduced, the global investment in american jobsing at this bill earns strong bipartisan support and i look forward to it hope

's get a republican voice. our next caller is calling from west bloomfield, michigan, on the republican line. good morning. caller: i would like to get your thoughts on a balanced approach and have unbiased taxation by using a flat tax. that way you can calculate the amount of taxes we need for the deficit over 10 years. another point is to control the spending on entitlements by not giving millionaires social security benefits, thereby satisfying president obama's approach. instead of doing it through taxation, he can do it through the entitlements. guest: those are both ideas that have been raised, especially the social security and medicare benefits for the wealthy and potentially might not need them to live off of. one tricky part of that is wealthier americans have been paying these taxes for decades into social security and medicare if and a lot of folks have a problem with the idea of taking away their benefits they have paid for if just because they happen to be more well off. and issued the first caller raised and something to watch is this could really sort of set the tone for
